Seaton residents brave the blustery conditions to remember the fallen
A LARGE crowd braved today’s stormy weather at Seaton to remember the victims of war.
They gathered at Windsor Gardens to observe the traditional two minutes’ silence.
Royal British Legion members were joined by Mayor Bob Palacio to parade to the poppy memorial from the town hall.
The exhortation was read by local RBL branch secretary Maurice Ayling and the bugler was chairman Lt Cmdr Derek Payne. Standards were carried by Jim Partridge Hogbin and Bruce Roberts.
